Statewide & Regional Partners


The Michigan Farmers Market Association (MIFMA) and Taste the Local Difference (TLD) have a long history of supporting the local food community in Michigan. Since 2017, we have worked together to provide coomplementary support to the state’s local farms and farmers markets. 

Please contact or for more information on how we work together.


We are proud to partner with the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services and subsidiaries to implement the Building Healthy Places grant. We identify sites, such as schools, hospitals, office buildings, and convenience stores, formulate a plan for long-lasting sustainable change, and support the businesses through the process. 

Please contact for more information.








Michigan Food and Farming Systems (MIFFS) and Taste the Local Difference (TLD) are long-time collaborators on projects ranging from the Michigan Statewide CSA Network, certifying the Michigan Family Farms Conference as a Local Food Event, to co-hosting workshops, and more! We are always finding innovative ways to join forces to better support producers, especially beginning and BIPOC producers, by connecting them to critical resources.
